How to get the euro sign on keyboard

Some of the new PC Keyboards, especially ones that are sold in Europe, should have the Euro (€) sign readily available in one of the key. But if yours, like mine, doesn't have it, then we will need to type it using some combination keys. There are 2 ways of getting a € sign with PC keyboard that I know of:
1. Type CTRL + ALT + 4
2. Type ALT + 0128 (In Numeric Pad)

Been trying to insert the @ key on another laptop

I don't fully understand, but if you are trying to find " @ " on different keyboard yo can try common ones
  • SHIFT + 2
  • R ALT + V (right alt key)
  • R ALT + 2
  • RALT + Q
But on every computer with nompad on keyboard you can use
  • L ALT + 64 (hold left alt and enter 64 on numpad, not work on numbers in up of keyboard)

You keyboard maybe lay'd out for another country. I saw this in Mexico once. ASCII are the characters. You type Alt-64 for @.

Cant print the symbol @ on my note book

Press SHIFT-2
if that isn't working , press and hold the ALT key, and type 64 on the numeric keypad then release the alt key.
If method 2 works, and method one doesn't, check your keyboard layout, and switch it back to US when you get the chance.
Also, see if the number 2 in the top row works at all...if not, the keyboard might be defective.

The character code for the @ is 64. To insert it, hold the ALT key down and type 0064 on the number pad.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need further assistance.
